    Personal profile


    Dr Federico Topolansky is an Assistant Professor at Coventry University, a position he took up in October 2019. He has also served as docent of business strategy and marketing at the Royal Agricultural University, The University of the Republic in Uruguay and Shandong Agricultural University (China). Federico  maintains close relations with ORT University (Uruguay) and University of Gloucestershire (UK).

Thanks to that grounding Federico has had the opportunity of managing research projects both locally and at international level.

    Federico has also been involved in many consultancy projects related to agribusiness, competitiveness and the impact of regional agreements in the UK and overseas. Prior to working as an Assistant Professor, Federico worked as a consultant to numerous global companies and organisations, including the United Nations, the World Bank, Seylinco S.A., Roche Vitamins Brazil Ltda., and BASF. At the beginning of his career, while working as an Agronomist, he pioneered innovative business models (in South America) to help small farmers to increase profits.

    He has researched extensively since 2005 and he has authored and co-authored a number of publications in peer-reviewed journals and The Farmers Club. He is a regular contributor at international conferences and seminars. Federico has a number of research interests that include: agribusiness, regional agreements, business strategy and international business.
